More Than Two: A Practical Guide to Ethical Polyamory is based on the idea that polyamory (meaning “many loves”) is possible for many people, but that it requires “the full knowledge and consent of everyone who is affected,” and also honesty, trust, work, communication, and mutual consideration. “Poly” is not for everyone, and the authors, Franklin Veaux and Eve Rickert, are up-front about this. There are many ways to approach poly. And lifestyles—they are argue—are changing, and alternative relationships are becoming increasingly acceptable for many people.

More than anything, this is a nuts and bolts guide to polyamory: what it is, how to do it, the shape of the relationship (are we an N or a V, a triad or swingers?), along with guides to rules and agreements, sexual health, and, my favorite, sex and laundry. Romance and sexuality take many forms and this very practical guide gives poly people, those interested in poly, or who just want to understand it, a resource to educate themselves about the realities, potential pitfalls, and joys to be found in polyamorous relationships. While this is not the sole authority on the topic, it is one that is practical, informative, and non-judgmental.

Chris Hayden been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
